WRITER’S ROOM NFTS

HOW MANY WRITER'S ROOM NFTS ARE THERE?

There are 6942 Writer's Room NFTs and no more will ever be made.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT TIERS OF WRITER'S ROOM NFTS?

There are four tiers of Writer’s Room NFTs. A Valet Ticket, Yacht Keys, a Valet Stand, and a WAGMI Yacht. Each comes with different perks that build upon the tier that comes before it. There is more information on each tier on the “How it works” page of our website.

WAS THE WRITER’S ROOM NFT A BLIND MINT?

Yes, minting Writer’s Room NFTs was blind and completely random. All Writer’s Room NFTS cost the same price to mint (0.069420 ETH). Writer’s Room NFTS are now sold out and you can purchase them on Opensea and Nifty Gateway.

HOW MANY OF EACH TIER OF WRITER’S ROOM NFTS EXIST?

  • 69 yachts (0.99% supply)
  • 297 valet stands (4.28% supply)

WHAT DO I GET FOR OWNING EACH TIER OF THE WRITER'S ROOM NFT?

Each tier of the Writer’s Room NFT comes with different voting power for all of the content we create in the Writer’s Room as well as a different level of acknowledgment and character involvement in the final book. Every member of the Writer’s Room can license approved avatars to our works.


Members of the Writer's Room will also be able to claim a free Book 1 NFT for every Writer's Room NFT they hold. The Book 1 NFT will have burn/hold game theory that triggers our Roadmap 2.0 and brings you deeper into the Tally Labs universe.

LICENSING

CAN I LICENSE MY APE OR MUTANT TO THE STORY?

Yes. Members of the Writer’s Room can license apes or mutants to the story.

DOES LICENSING CHANGE BASED ON THE TIER OF THE WRITER’S ROOM NFT THAT I HAVE?

The scope of your ape or mutant’s role in the book will change based on the Writer's Room NFT that you have, but the financial incentive is the same for all licensing agreements, regardless of tier.

DOES LICENSING FOLLOW MY APE OR MUTANT? IF I SELL MY APE OR MUTANT, DOES THE NEW HOLDER GET PAID?

Yes, the licensing agreement that you sign as the holder of the ape/mutant grants payment to the wallet that the ape/mutant is in. We use the Ethereum blockchain to track the wallets that hold the apes/mutants we have licensing agreements with to pay those wallets when we make disbursements.

ONCE I’VE LICENSED AN APE OR MUTANT IN THE WRITER’S ROOM, CAN I LICENSE ANOTHER?

We are offering licenses to members for one ape or mutant per Writer's Room NFT. If you have another ape/mutant, you need another Writer's Room NFT to license that ape/mutant.

IF I SELL A WRITER'S ROOM NFT ON THE SECONDARY MARKET BEFORE I'VE LICENSED AN APE OR MUTANT, CAN THE NEW OWNER LICENSE AN APE OR MUTANT TO THE STORY?

Yes, if you sell a Writer's Room NFT on the secondary market before signing a licensing agreement for an ape or mutant, the new holder can sign a licensing agreement for one of their apes/mutants. This may make your Writer's Room NFT more valuable - similar to someone who was selling a BAYC ape with an unclaimed BAKC dog.


If you are considering purchasing a Writer’s Room NFT on the secondary market after the licensing window has opened, you may use our “check license” tool on the website to see if it has already been used to license an Ape/Mutant.

IF I DON’T HAVE AN APE OR MUTANT, CAN I PARTNER WITH SOMEONE WHO DOES TO LICENSE THEM TO THE STORY?

You need to hold the commercial rights to an ape or mutant in order to license those commercial rights to the Writer’s Room so that we can use your ape or mutant in the story. There are two ways to hold the commercial rights to an ape or mutant. The first way is to literally hold the ape or mutant in your wallet. The second way is to sign a licensing agreement with an ape or mutant holder in order to use their commercial rights.


We will be publishing a free use licensing agreement that anyone can use to make partnerships with ape and mutant holders. You don’t have to use our free use agreement, but we realize it may be helpful for some non-ape and non-mutant holders to gain the rights to other apes and mutants. When it comes time to make disbursements, we will make them in accordance to the terms you and your partner input into the signed agreement.

VOTING AND CREATIVE DIRECTION

WHO IS WRITING THE DEBUT JENKINS NOVEL?

We have come to an agreement with a 10x NYT bestselling author who will work with the community to bring the debut Jenkins novel to market.

MY WRITER’S ROOM NFT COMES WITH VOTES. WHAT CAN I VOTE FOR?

You can vote on all creative proposals for the book ranging from title and genre to plot twists and ending.

CAN I MAKE PROPOSALS FOR OTHERS TO VOTE ON?

You can submit proposals and the Jenkins creative team will bring ones most commonly suggested to the whole voting community.

WHEN WILL THE VOTING PORTAL LAUNCH?

The voting portal is built and we will roll it out when our 10x NYT bestselling author officially begins working with the community.

THE COMPLETED BOOK NFT

WHAT IS THE OUTPUT OF OUR COLLECTIVE WORK?

The Writer’s Room community will create a completed book that will be for sale as its own NFT. We may also seek traditional publishing through our agents at CAA. Members of the Writer’s Room will receive this book NFT for free as they are creators of it. The book NFT will match the serial of your Writer’s Room NFT and it will be the catalyst for entering roadmap 2.0.

IF I LICENSE MY APE OR MUTANT TO THE BOOK, DO I GET PAID FOR BOOK SALES?

Yes, you get paid a profit share for all primary and secondary sales of the completed book NFT that we will sell to the general public.

FUTURE PLANS

JENKINS THE VALET IS SIGNED TO CAA? WHAT’S THAT ABOUT?

We are working with CAA across books, film, TV, podcasts, and more. They represent Jenkins the Valet and everything our community creates in the Writer’s Room. CAA helps us scale Jenkins’ content and build our voice as the storytellers of the Metaverse.

WILL THERE BE MORE CONTENT?

The premise of the Writer’s Room is that our authentic, crypto-native community will pair with elite Hollywood creatives to create the lore that will come to define the Metaverse. There will be much, much more content (in many forms)! Hold onto that Writer’s Room NFT - it’s a genesis :)

WILL WRITER’S ROOM STORIES EVER LICENSE OTHER AVATARS?

The team is currently making connections with creators of other avatar projects to discuss their terms and conditions and how licensing might work for their avatars. When we do eventually license other avatars, we will offer agreements to members of the Writer’s Room.


In addition to this, the team at Tally Labs reserves the right to create their own avatar projects that would feature industry leading terms for owners.

WILL YOU EVER SELL ADDITIONAL WRITER’S ROOM NFTS?

Nope. The 6942 Writer’s Room NFTs are the only ones that will ever be sold. Writer’s Room NFTS are now sold out and you can purchase them on Opensea and Nifty Gateway.

WHAT OTHER PERKS DO I GET FOR HOLDING A WRITER’S ROOM NFT?

Members only yacht valet merch drops and other physical and NFT goods airdropped to you as well as access to the Writer’s Room in The Sandbox on the Real Estapes plot (Next to BAYC).

WEN DAO?

Jenkins...keep your mouth shut... Don’t give away too much of Roadmap 2.0!
